The QBI & Gladstone Institute Infectious Disease and Human Health Seminar Series presents Koh Fujinaga, PhD, an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Rheumatology Division of the Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. He obtained his PhD in the late 90s at Hokkaido University in Japan and came to UCSF for his postdoc study under Professor B. Matija Peterlin. He continued his research at Case Western and University of Michigan in the 2000s, and then returned to UCSF in 2010. Since then, he has co-run a lab with Matija, and after Matija’s semi-retirement, Fujinaga has led the lab in Parnassus. This year, he joined Nevan Krogan’s HARC team and Dr. Alan Frankel’s lab in Mission Bay while administratively remaining in the Department of Medicine/Rheumatology as an Adjunct Associate Professor.

Koh Fujinaga’s main research interest is biochemical analysis of transcriptional regulation in immune cells, which controls HIV replication/latency and cellular immune functions.
